Monthly Energy Review July 2015 release
Summary data on energy production, consumption, stocks, trade, prices, and emissions
The July 2015 Monthly Energy Review (MER), EIA's primary report of recent and historical energy statistics, was released on July 28, 2015. Preliminary estimates indicate that for April 2015:
- The transportation sector accounted for 73% of total U.S. estimated petroleum consumption. Motor gasoline represented 63% of estimated petroleum consumption in the transportation sector, distillate fuel oil 24%, and jet fuel 12%.
- The industrial sector accounted for 23% of total U.S. estimated petroleum consumption.
- The residential sector accounted for 2% of total U.S. estimated petroleum consumption, almost all of it in the form of liquefied petroleum gases and distillate fuel oil.
- The commercial and electric power sectors each accounted for 1% of total U.S. estimated petroleum consumption.
The MER provides monthly and annual data on total energy production, consumption, and trade; energy prices; overviews of petroleum, natural gas, coal, electricity, nuclear energy, renewable energy, and international petroleum; carbon dioxide emissions; and data unit conversions. As of December 2013, the MER includes pre-1973 historical data for approximately 70 data tables previously published in EIA’s Annual Energy Review. See What’s New in the MER for a record of changes.
